Every year FUMC helps to provide a meal and minister to Taylor Youth during this summer event.

We need volunteers to provide food items as well as help at the event. We will be feeding 70-80 people.
We will meet at church at 6:30 p.m. and car pool to the park. Otherwise, you can just meet us at the park to enjoy the fun. Bring your own lawn chairs and bug spray.

MDO Teacher Spotlight
Stephanie Martinka
This week we feature our incredibly talented, creative, and fun Chapel, Worship, and Music Leader, Mrs. Stephanie Martinka.
Stephanie always plans very visual and hands-on chapel lessons that make our weekly Bible lessons easy to understand and memorable for our students. She also picks the best songs to sing and dance to during our weekly music time where we praise and worship our Lord Jesus through song. Stephanie has 13 years of childcare experience as both an MDO teacher and a nanny. She is a 2005 graduate of Belton High School and went on to further her education at Mary Hardin-Baylor. She is proud to be a farmer’s wife and she and her husband, Matt have been married for seven years. They are members of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Corn Hill and make their home in Bartlett with their two boys, ages 5 and 2. Thank you, Stephanie, for sharing your beautiful voice and joyful personality with us at FUMC! Please check out our album on this page “Chapel Time” for just a few examples of the fun times we have with Mrs. Stephanie!

Julia is a 2016 graduate of Taylor High School and currently attends Austin Community College. She hopes to teach Pre-K or Kindergarten with a specialization in deaf education. She has worked in the nursery for the past six years right here at First United Methodist and has been a member of FUMC for the past seven years. We are so blessed that Julia joined our team!

Catharena Rydell
Two Year Old Class Aide

This week we feature our magnificent aide, Catharena (Miss Cat). We were blessed to have this wonderful lady join our team this November and we’re not sure how we ever survived without her! She and Mrs. Lisa make a great team as they teach God’s Word to our friends in the Two year old class. Mrs. Cat has worked with children many years, including teaching the two year old class previously, right here at FUMC several years ago for two school years. She worked for six years in Hearne ISD in the Behavioral Department for the district’s elementary schools, and has worked caring for the elderly for the past eight years. She and her husband, Lance, who is a teacher at Taylor Middle School, have been married 22 years and they attend Hutto Lutheran Church, where Cat has been a Sunday School teacher for many years. They have two daughters, one finishing her first year of college and one in fifth grade. We are so very happy that Cat chose to become part of our family at FUMC! She is such a blessing to the children, families, and teachers here and we love her dearly! Thank you, Mrs. Cat, for making our days so much brighter!


Church Work Days

Be sure to join us this Friday, 4/27, and Saturday, 4/28, for our Church Clean-Up and Work Days. There’s much to be done around the church, that we need your helping and working hands. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, come on over and help out. Bring gloves,  hedger or whatever you’d use to prune flower beds and yards. You can also help out inside of the church with whatever you think needs clean-up! #Teamwork #FUMCTaylor
